Always judge a book by it’s cover

thomas_allen_13Not only does Thomas Allen invite viewers to judge a book by it’s cover, but to bring it to life. In his Book Art Photography, he cuts out scene from the cover of retro pulp fiction novels to create 3D visual scenes, or “dioramas”. Not only are they risque and dramatic, they make me was to dig through old book stores and read some of these film-noir-inspiring novels. I also love how the titles on the book spines create another dimension to the scene.
